I have had mean males and females so I am not going to think there is a diff to be honest just not them together lol !!

I recently had a tiny pink convict female living with jags 3 to 4 times her size and holding her own

OK I wasn't so sure If there was a difference in Behavior or not . Out of the pair of convicts that I have now for breeding it seems the male is more aggressive compared to the female . I figured I should ask Cause some reason I thought females were less aggressive than male's.

I have male and female convicts. the males are huge (like 7"), so they went in the 120, and are doing well with a green terror, jd, texas etc...
I have the female in a 60 with a midas. She is tiny in comparison, even though she is the same age as the males. She is only about 3".

If I had to pick one for being the more agressive, I would choose the female. She lays eggs just for the heck of it, and gaurds them well. She will put the midas in a corner when this is going on.

Wow now that's one mean little fish That's nice to know. I know both my Convict's would bite at my fingers for going to close to were they had there baby's. The male bite was more worse than the female . And this was all over cleaning the tank and moving something's to do a good job.
